About the event
Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most familiar and darkest tales. Our production plays out in a not-so-distant, dystopian world, where society is teetering upon the brink of collapse. The Macbeth's tormented struggle for power is fueled by ambition, paranoia, and encouraged by the supernatural, but ultimately becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy rather than a product of outside manipulation. This story is not just about Macbeth, but rather the collaboration and partnership of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to taste the bittersweet fruits of their sown treachery. From the first moment, the action drives at a frantic pace, with dramatic battles, personal intrigue, and lots of sampling from the playlists of each character's experience. The "weird sisters" bring mystery and prophesy through an intoxicating musical appeal that is sexy, alluring, but extremely dangerous.
